good down home cooking and the best fresh baked pies made daily. Try the rhubarb custard, warmed and with a scoop of vanilla, the best! Just don't get any on your forehead or your tongue will beat you trying to get it off. I eat here often, it's in my home town.

I had a very good lunch. The Barn is known for their Made-Rites and Pies. I had one of their Made-Rites and fries along with a Mountain Dew. I wanted to have a slice of one of their famous pies, but I was to full already. If you pass thru Brainerd Minnesota, you will have to stop at The Barn.... More

Stopped here on a whim because it looked like a cute place. I had a very tasty maid rite and fries which I topped off with an amazing piece of homemade peach pie.

The Barn is a very, very small place but the best pie. Our waitress was very happy and good and I think she knew everyone who came in the door. We went for the pie,I had the three berry, the pie crust was light and fluffy. GO FOR THE PIE but go early, everyone orders the pie.

Small with only a few booths and some counter space. Be prepared to wait as it can get busy and really difficult if you have a... More

The Barn is a great local hang out with great food. They are known for their Maid Rites and homemade pie. It's in a convenient location, right on Washington/210 in Brainerd, across from the old water tower.

My family of 3 went there for lunch. We were eating our food, and I happened to take another look at the salt shaker after we had received our food, and already used the salt shaker. There were SMALL BUGS inside the shaker, which we had already sprinkled on our food!!!!! I wanted to make sure they were really bugs,... More

Lunch (Swiss mushroom burger) was great. Many choices for pie. I had banana cream. It was a huge piece and excellent. Nice local folks who gave us many tips of what to do. I highly recommend.
